Add Style to Your Bathroom

An effective bathroom design should address all your needs. Below are 4 important tips to consider when planning your bathroom renovation.

  • Select Durable Flooring - Ceramic, marble and stone tiles are all excellent durable and water-resistant choices for a bathroom. Subfloor heating coils will make these hard surfaces warm.
  • Sit In the Bathtub Before Purchasing It - Bigger isn't always better.
  • Create Extra Space - A tall, in-wall cabinet in between wall studs can maximize storage without minimizing floor space.
  • Design Lighting that Will Make You Look Your Best Self - Quality lighting is essential. Create a shadow free lighting design with halogen pot lights or in wall scones around your mirror. Installing a dimmer switch is great for modifying your light to suit your mood!
